Speak low


Speak low
when you speak, love
Our summer day
withers away
too soon, too soon

Speak low
when you speak, love
Our moment is swift
like ships adrift
we're swept apart
too soon

Speak low
darling, speak low
Love is a spark
lost in the dark
too soon, too soon

I feel wherever I go
that tomorrow is near
tomorrow is here
and always too soon

Time is so old
and love so brief
Love is pure gold
and time, a thief

We're late
darling, we're late
The curtain descends
and everything ends
too soon, too soon

We wait
oh darling, we're late
Will you speak low to me
speak love to me
and soon
